Isn't it super irresponsible and selfish as a peer to tell your depressed friends that "things will get better"?
Life doesn't magically change because you wish for it, only you can change your life.
Future isn't some magical place where all your problems get solved.
You have to learn from your past and change things yourself if you want change.
Shitty people will always exist in this world.
Shitty things will continue to happen no matter what you think of it.
So stop hoping that it will be different in the future.
If you don't work towards shaping your future and yourself, there is 0% chance that you will be in a different place than you are now.
. . .
But if you don't have to willpower to do so,
then its probably better to give up.
